This book is poorly written and lacks the likeable characters featured on the TV series.
The many Americanisms and references to people only Americans have heard of, also makes it a difficult read for people outside the US.
My advice. Don't bother.
‘Then I realized, Of course: She’s from London. No one’s told her about the End of Love in Manhattan. Then I thought: She’ll learn.’
Speaking as an English woman, I wasn’t offended by her references and found the obvious differences between Americans and we English quite amusing. Of course my favourite parts of the book were the encounters between Carrie and Mr. Big. All in all the book wasn’t quite what I expected, but was a well written, funny and enjoyable read and I can see why it was made into a television series and then into several motion pictures with great success. Girl power!
However, it has dated, and that's more to do with the tv series than the passing of time (though that has a part to play). It's not nearly as explicit, in places it shies away from being so, but the topics, to an officianado of the series felt a little - well, stale, occasionally a bit boring. So in that sense, not at all like Jane Austen. I suspect this book's success was built largely on its shockability and now that it's gone. then - well, it explains why I had to get it second hand and it wasn't available on kindle, I suspect.
But for all that, I'm glad I read - an exercise in style with some really funny bits. Almost, in its own way, dystopian even.
What a waste of money, this book is nothing like the series (i know a lot of books are this way but this is extremely bad) i was left wondering how such an amazing series was developed from such a terrible book. The book is made up of columns and this is about the only similarity with the series, howover, there is absolutely no flow to the columns and most of the time the book makes no sense whatsoever. I was often left thinking "whats going on"
I also bought another of Bushnells books but i can't bring myself to read it after attempting this rubbish! Haven't finished the book and never will
Don't waste your money, especially if your a fan of the series, this book will just irritate you

I don't want to criticise this book, because it's the source material for a show, which (in my opinion) is a scriptwriting triumph. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Kayleigh Marie Edwards
